The Public Education Center
Public Education Center will be open to the public for the purpose of educating our youth!
The facility will also serve as a training location for ABC Foundation! We will train those who want to take the pledge to be part of the team!
THE MISSION--The mission of the Public Education Center is to empower both young and adult learners to become critical thinkers and problem solvers and/or increase their strengths in this area. We endeavor to encourage a love for learning and provide comprehensive plan for advancement and improvement. While it is our mission to promote academic literacy in all learners, we will also provide financial literacy instruction which will help the student to increase their level of learning with finances so that they can attach a dividend approach to their growth and success. We are dedicated to guiding students along the path of enrichment and academic success to enhance the quality of their life both now and in the future.

10 Reasons to Get Involved
1. Your child benefits
When parents get connected to the school, children do better. Research shows children whose parents are involved get better grades, do better on tests, and have fewer discipline problems at school.
2. We make a difference
Our mission is to create the kind of school community where teachers and administrators can do their best work, and so can our children. We provide support for teachers in and out of the classroom. We provide resources they need. We help create learning opportunities for children and we try to build the kind of supportive, caring atmosphere that makes school fun.
3. We pledge to honor your time constraints
People are often reluctant to participate because they’re afraid they’ll get pulled into a black hole of never-[removed]ending time commitment. That won’t happen here. An hour or two a semester really makes a difference. And we won’t push you to commit more than you want to or are able to.
4. We have fun
Volunteer work shouldn’t be drudgery. We accomplish a lot, and not everything we do is easy. But we know we’re not balancing the national debt, either. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, and we try to enjoy ourselves along the way whenever possible.
5. Meet nice people who share your concerns
We all have a common bond. We care about creating the best possible educational experience for our children. We are neighbors and peers who share many of the same experiences. And many friendships have developed as a result of those connections.
6. There’s a lot to be done
These days, schools are asked to do more with less. Our help is needed more than ever to fill the gaps.
7. We can match jobs to your interests and abilities.
The work we do covers a broad spectrum: filing and photocopying, planning and executing events, writing and editing, working directly with children, managing a budget and cash flow, and lots more. We encourage creative ideas, and we’re thrilled to have people take on tasks that meet their skills and interests.
8. We are welcoming
There are no “outsiders.” We are people who have come together to work towards common goals. We couldn’t be happier to have you join us in working toward those goals
9. We are about parent involvement, not fundraising
In these times of tight budgets, parent groups everywhere have to fill in the gaps, and so are we. But our number one goal is to get more parents connected to the school. That’s because more than 300 Independent research studies show that building parent Involvement in education is the number one thing we can do to create a great school and improve student performance.
10. This work is very rewarding.
It’s seeing the bright light of learning sparkle in a child’s eye. It’s seeing the smile that shows we’re making school a little more fun-[removed]and a child feel a little more comfortable in a learning environment. It’s learning that test scores have increased and knowing we played a role. There are lots of rewards, both big and small, for those who get involved. Join us today!

At the Public Education Center we believe that each individual has the capacity and ability to learn. We address the needs of every learner whether it is in an area of challenge or a desire to increase in performance or continued education. While we understand each individual has their own learning style, the Public Education Center is designed to specifically provide individual assistance that will meet the need of the learner. We provide support, dedication, patience and instruction in order to increase the learner’s ability to focus and concentrate, which will in turn develop a love for learning. We believe that time and a direct teacher to student approach will allow every learner of the Public Education Center to be richly advanced as they go forward in learning. No learner is left behind or overlooked; academic success is the final outcome of the Public Education Center student.
Our objective is to enrich the academic achievements of students by reinforcing education received in the classroom environment through tutoring, and homework assistance, as well as life skills training giving them the ability to pass the TAKS and other skills assessment tests on the first attempt with commended scores.
We intend to promote financial stability for all ages through the “Learn 2 Earn Program” for youths and the FDIC Money Smart Program for young adults and adults. It is our endeavor to address the needs of every learner by providing individual assistance specifically designed for their area of challenge.
· Provide homework assistance, tutoring, special project aid, learning enhancement
· Maintain a computer lab that will offer resource development, data research, e-[removed]tours
· Promote adult literacy by offering GED courses, academic advancement, life skills learning
· Build financial knowledge, security and confidence with the learn-[removed]2-[removed]earn program for children in the grades Pre K through 8th
· Introduce all levels of financial literacy with the FDIC approved Money Smart Program for both young adults and adults
To provide education in financial matters as a foundation for children and their parents, without a solid financial base it becomes impossible to provide family security. These students will receive guidance from qualified instructors, tutors and community counselors; who will assess the students’ needs based on their acquired knowledge.
